Specialty Asset Appraisals LLC is different from most appraisal firms because we are certified with the International Society of Appraisers, the largest of the professional personal property appraisal associations in the United States and Canada. The International Society of Appraisers (ISA) core course in appraisal studies, in addition to its other academic coursework, is regarded as the most comprehensive in the industry. ISA trained asset appraisers are leaders in appraisal methodology and ethics. Specialty Asset Appraisals, through its involvement with the ISA, seeks to enhance public trust by producing qualified appraisals and engaging ethical appraisers who are recognized authorities in personal property appraisals.
Associates at Specialty Asset Appraisals LLC combine previous experience in the museum field with industry knowledge to provide a client-oriented approach to developing objective, unbiased and substantiated personal property appraisal reports. Our appraisal reports are written in full compliance with the International Society of Appraiser’s report and writing standards as well as the Appraisal Foundation’s Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
